O-kay... I needed a sec, a few minutes actually. Just WHAT sort of TWIST was THAT?! Totally did NOT see it.
You've managed some sneaky twists in this one.
What with Charalam, and then with Spock Senior. I'm just bug-eyed and gaping. Sepak, there, watching?! Oh GOD... What?
Sneak attack like no other.
I read a story somewhere before where it ended with the two Spocks deciding to 'share' Jim. But this one is on another plane, the mental plane... And Voyeurism!
Haha! Gosh gosh gosh, bloody socks man. ... -le still gaping-
Then you go name that baby Zachary.
Floored! I am floored! Though this has me floored in a way where I'm being floored on cloud nine! Like all that earlier wasn't enough?! Hah! Awesome man.
Followed soon after by Winona marrying Pike. I knew you were throwing them curveballs left right and center so I was ready when this one came! and baby Amanda. Imagine that! A 3/4 vulcan baby named Amanda. HAH! Bow down to matriach Amanda! I'd imagine it would be really hard to remain stern with a warm and gentle name like that ;D
The little bit about Sulu and Chekov didn't slip by me (ship em young I say!)
Anyway. Curve balls and sneak attacks aside.
This has been a very very pleasant read. It was very light, and overall delightful. And humorous! I still recall a few lines here and there - thank you Dr. Bones - that still has be muffling snickers.
It wasn't one of those more deeper and darker stories with complicated and troubling emotions running high.
Coming home felt just as the name suggests. Like you had a very long but enlightening journey, filled with good memories, the touch of trouble just amplifies your gratitude at the wonder and love you've experienced, then you reach back home and everything comes full circle. That sigh of contentment, and feeling complete.
This one is a chicken soup receipe. In plot and love and words for the soul.
Once again, thank you for this awesome literary filling meal :)
I adored Spock Prime in the movie and couldn't leave him on his own, I just couldn't. I had to find a fix, and there it was. It had to be done. :-)
I think when I wrote this story on Livejournal, my notes included the observation that the Enterprise was turning into a love boat! You're right, this is kind of candyfloss - I like light, upbeat stories and don't feel confident yet, as a writer, to try the darker, emotion-laden stuff yet. I love the idea of this story being soothing, something to turn to when things aren't so good. :-)
Thank you SO much for leaving all your awesome, thought-provoking comments, showing me your thinking and reactions as you were reading - I really loved it and appreciate it. ♥

you know. I always knew you were the sort who did your research very diligently. Or that you were just plain intelligent.
but this whole Medical field is astounding me, and I studied sciences for quite some years too.
Just wow, at your ER terminology.
and explanations. Very eloquently phrased.
Of cause, it's always a plus when nobody dies in the end :)
And ofcause, Charalam is made hero for the day~
I do do a lot of research as I'm a stickler for detail, and am also aware many people who read my work are qualified in medicine and sciences. I'm so glad the medical terminology rings true - I remember doing a LOT of reading up about all this. I am a qualified massage therapist, and had to do considerable studying in anatomy and physiology, so I already have a fairly strong grounding which helps me a lot! :-) Thank you for this lovely feedback - it means a lot!

This Charalam is bugging me. Charalam sounds too much like Charlatan. And it's making me wonder if perhaps that near-pun is very intended.
What is this woman up to really. First with the coffee. then soaked wet on the same day Anderson nearly drowned to death. Sneaking to places she ought not be at. Then under a table. What next?
Ah, Ensign Charalam. A lot of readers had alarm bells going off about her. Always in the wrong place at the wrong time... :-)

Hmmmm what a convinient compromise they have managed for themselves aye~
This is awesome, this is splendid, this is nearly as good as them meeting at childhood :P But still sooner better than later.
Spock Prime is totally meddlesome, and I love him for it. :-)

You know I usually just read read read until I'm done reading the story, then I review. But gotta pause now.
Because. This chapter felt awesome on a subtle level. Like awesome sneak-attack. Like, I'm just reading, then suddenly the plan unfolds and it's like - WHOA MAN - that was good stuff man...
I loved, in particular, the conversation Jim had with Bones. Really really felt it, the way is was played out, and how it blended so nicely with the setting and plot. It was really , I don't know what you call it, a work of art? Literary art. I'm reminded once again what a plot genius you are! Thank you! Gotta love the good plots man, love them, they're rare you know.
Will be resuming, my enjoying read of your many chapters to come :D
I have LOADS of assumptions. (LikespockisgoingintoponfarrandmaybehewantstobeaGoladepttoo and thefreakingsparkbetweenhimandjimscreamsThyla!) but we'll see what the future holds~
I'm sorry I didn't get around to responding to all your feedback until now. Going through each one has made me smile. Coming Home was my first (and so far, only) novel length story and I found it huge fun building in all the plot points and foreshadowing. Your comment is extremely generous - it's left a big smile on my face. :-) Thank you! ♥

Good character study. I enjoyed the development of their relationship from advesarial to lovers. The events after the bonding ceremony were a surprise, cut a pleasant one and rather heartfelt. Great story telling.
This was only my second reboot story and technically the first as I got started on it before the first one I posted. I began it immediately after the moview was released in May '09 and finished it in August - I can't believe I wrote to much, so quickly, with three major edits too! I felt I had to resolve the issue of Spock Prime being stuck in a universe on his own - I simply couldn't leave him like that and I couldn't imagine either Jim or Spock would, either. So glad you enjoyed it - thank you for the feedback! ♥

This has to be one of my favorite ST fics ever. I love their first kiss, I love McCoy's friendship jealousy, I love Kirk calling Sarek dad (lol), and I love Kirk and Spock sharing their bond with Prime Spock.
Thank you so much for this lovely story.
I'm thrilled you name this story one of your favourites - given how many awesome stories are out there, that's really made my day! :)
I had so much fun writing this in the initial aftermath of the release of STXI, playing with the dynamics of the relationships and resolving a serious problem I had with poor Spock Prime being stuck alone in a new universe.
Thank you for your kind and generous comment. <3

This was such a nice read. I love what they did for prime spock. Not to mention now the idea of threesome won't leave me alone! I really enjoyed reading this.Thank you so much for writing it!You are one of my favorite writers in this archive.You totally rock!

Hehe, I love the Sherlock Holmes reference you made there!
Hee! That was written before all the various Sherlock Holmes movies and TV series was released. It's a nod to the fact that Spock (Prime) quotes Holmes in one of the movies. :)

I was going to say I hope bones starts to see true spock and how much these two are born for each other but instead I'm going to say OH MY GOD! WHAT WILL HAPPEN NOW!DRAMA!YAY!
Always keep the drama up! Jim's going to need to find a way to ensure his old Academy friend is included in his life. And yay for drama! :D

I'm really enjoying this story! Very well-written and in character.Then again all your stories are like this and I love them all! You are amazing. I love how this one is going, specially focuing on Spock's pain and sorrow.It was so such a great lost for him and people don't explore the effects enough.Again, loving this!
I wrote this right after the movie was released and I was still in shock, myself, over the destruction of Vulcan. Holding that in my heart made it easy to empathise with Spock's pain. I'm so glad the characters are working for you. :)

This was soo great--I simply gobbled it up and never reviewed *shameface*--the story is well told and the characters believable--lots of info and even the grammar is splendid!
Haven't seen you in a while...glad you're back!
Author's Response: Well, I appreciate you reviewing it now! And so happy to hear the grammar worked for you. I may or may not be known as a bit of a grammar fiend, so I find this comforting. ;) Thanks for the welcome back! Life, it's been happening. ;) <3

I love to see this story here! thanks for bringing it over! Its one of my favourites ever!
Just one tiny lil thing.. chapters 13 and 12 are out of order.. or was it 11 and 12?.. gah, its almost 2 am now, but I had to say it.
thanks for sharing!
Thank you so much for saying that! I really appreciate it. :) And thank you for pointing out the chapter switch! I was having real problems posting it and I think I got into a muddle! :) Thank you for reading, commenting and for the five stars! <3

I've read this a million times but gotta tell you once more just how much I love it! My fave part is them sharing the bond with Spock prime, so sweet. Very well done. You are still my fanfic hero. ;)
What a lovely comment! Thank you *so* much! :D My heart broke for Spock Prime when I saw the movie, and the thought of him being alone in the 'wrong' universe - I couldn't leave him like that. I'm very happy you liked my solution. I really appreciate your very kind words. <3

The first K/S I've ever read and it still grips me from start to finish. It's one of my top 5 stories in the fandom and I love it to death. After I finished reading it for the first time, I promptly started again the next day because it's just so beautiful.
I just love all your work, be it Abrams or TOS, and I do hope you will soon find the time (and inspiration) to finish "My Mind to Yours".
Thank you for re-posting this, I needed the reminder to re-read one of the best stories ever written in this fandom.
Wow, that's a *lovely* thing to say! Given the number of amazing and talented authors in the fandom, I'm really thrilled you've put this story up there! :) I've got My Mind To Yours mapped out, but life overtook me and seemed to suck out my writing mojo. :( I aim to finish it and Everyone Deserves Music - I definitely won't abandon them! I was fiddling with the chapters and it caused this story to show up again in the 'recent' section! :) Thank you again for your wonderful comment - it's really made my day (and I needed it!!). <3

Yay! Loved the epilogue. I remember reading this a long, long time ago and wishing it had one, lol. Beautiful story, deserves more reviews.
Thank you so much for reading this (again) and I'm glad you still enjoyed it. Thank you, too, for leaving your lovely comment. :)
